ubuntu 5.04 on an AMD Sempron processor
I am trying to install ubuntu 5.04 for intel x86 on a Mobile AMD Sempron processor, this is the processor of a Notebook HP Pavilion ze2000 and after 30s into the installation(default) everything will just stop. I already have Windows XP on that machine and i want to put ubuntu in a new partition(dual boot).
Does it means this version is not for AMD processor? If yes, which one should I use?
Also is it possible to install Ubuntu in a third partition, with the first one windows XPand the second Red Hat 9?
I don't think ubuntu 5.04 for x86 intel is right for AMD processor
>Could you describe your error in more detail? where does it stop? what is it doing at the time?
I wanted to do a default installation and it just stopped 5s after I pressed enter when prompted at the beginning (boot: enter). The screen went blank and everything just stop as if I have shut down.
>You have the right version for your proccessor.
Then what about the 64-bit PC (AMD64) install CD ? This is what I want to download and try now. Is it ok?

Is your AMD Sempron 64-bit enabled? There are two different versions of the socket 754 Semprons. One would be able to run the AMD64 version (if 64-bit instructions are enabled), but the other would not.
